I teach this lovely art in New York and New Jersey. You can learn to make your own French bead flowers with petals and leaves of glass beads even if there is no teacher or class near you: I have just produced a brand-new instructional video/DVD for beginners and one for experienced flower beaders. Each is over an hour long.
For more information and to order a DVD or my pattern CD, click here.
Email me to discuss any bridal piece, finished arrangement, hair clip, or anything else you would like done in bead flowers. Any of the flowers shown here can be duplicated to fill your own container. Just double-click on any picture to see a larger version. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Winner
|Cotton blossoms seem to bloom from the sides rather than the top of the flower.
|This was a triple-blue-ribbon-winner. I developed the pattern for the magnolias.
Swarovski Crystal Pin
|Flowers on the same plant can show many different shades of the same color.
|A sparkling pin made of all Swarovski crystal beads is a real head-turner. You can buy these from me ready-made!
Southwestern Vase, Yellow Roses
|The Southwestern container was used for this arrangement because the owner loves that area of the country.
|This is a Cattleya with the deep ruffling. I made it for my aunt. She had had a Cattleya but it didn't bloom any more; I copied it from previous pictures of it in bloom.
|I developed the pattern for the large orchid by looking at a bead orchid in some Japanese bead books. Very satisfying when it's finished.
|Bead flowers make stunning bridal bouquets that are real heirloom pieces.
